Since this is the season of all things pumpkin, it’s only right that I share a recipe for Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting! (Everything tastes good with cream cheese frosting…)
This is a simple recipe that you can make with the kiddos to celebrate the season of pumpkin. It’s almost like a deconstructed Pumpkin Roll.
Imagine a piece of pumpkin cake with a nice warm cup of coffee…… Ahem, now that I’ve drooled all over myself, off to make one!
The dry ingredients are what come first. Whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Next up, the wet ingredients. Beat the eggs, sugar (not wet, but supposed to be here), oil and pumpkin in a large bowl until well blended. The smell is outrageous!
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing well throughout.
Pour the mixture into an ungreased 9×13″ baking pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until set in a 350º oven.
Let the cake cool completely.
Now for the frosting deliciousness! Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla together until well blended. Slowly beat in powdered sugar. Perfect, right?
Don’t forget to refrigerate until you’re ready to serve the cake…if you can wait that long!
